Xcel International Donates to Friends of the University of Hawai‘i Cancer Center

Xcel Donation Friends Board

Xcel International has made another donation to the Friends, adding to the cumulative fund for the skin cancer prevention education program conducted by the Cancer Center and supported by the Friends.

This donation is from a portion of Xcel’s nationwide sales of UV performance and outdoor recreational gear, a full product line of UltraViolet Protection Factor (UPF) rated sun-protective clothing for both adults and youth. With this most recent donation, Xcel has contributed over $50,000 for the Xcel Skin Cancer Prevention Fund.

The fund is part of an ongoing partnership between Xcel International and the Cancer Center to promote skin cancer prevention.
